“ResistRNC“ or ”Occupy the RNC,” an Occupy-related protest of the Republican National Convention in Tampa, Fla., this August, has posted some disturbing “action planning” videos on their website, encouraging protesters to take violent action against police.
The top of the group’s “action” page states, “…if you are looking for ideas to help you with your action planning, here are some helpful videos!”
“Anything is possible…anything. Happy Action Planning!” the website reads.
The site makes sure to distance itself from potential violence by claiming ResistRNC is an “above-ground coordinating committee. We are not organizing actions.“ They also try to claim they are not ”condoning or supporting illegal activities.”
That would be a lot more convincing if one of the “helpful” videos posted on ResistRNC‘s website didn’t show a man igniting a Molotov cocktail and tossing it towards a group of police officers before putting up two middle fingers towards the cops. But it does.
The video appears to be some sort of a remix of the popular Jay-Z and Kanye West song, “Run This Town,” put together by a group called SubMedia TV and apparently preformed by a group that calls themselves Testament.
